Abstract:
The thesis is a critical feminist analysis of Islamic dress, as it is constructed in contemporary human rights jurisprudence and the surrounding debate. Islamic dress and, in particular, various restrictions on its wearing have been a greatly topical issue within recent years in both scholarship and popular imagination. There have recently been important legal developments. both within domestic jurisdictions and international human rights regimes, which have provoked much academic commentary. On one level, the thesis contributes to this commentary. At the same time, it aims to contribute to broader feminist theory, which engages with questions of human rights, gender, culture and religion.
